AAA TV (SAT) 02/19/2011 Plaza De Toros El Pinal, Teziutlan, Puebla[Mi Lucha Libre (5)Mi Lucha Libre (6)Mi Lucha Libre (2-4)AAA,Black Terry Jr. (flickr)]
1) Dare Devil & FenixDark Dragon & Gallego
Dark match. “Dare Devil” looks like he might be Dark Devil of IWRG.
2) Jennifer Blake, Mini Chessman, RoninLolita, Mini Charly Manson, Sugi San
Lolita, who’s shown up on DTU shows and is a trainee of the Apaches, replaced the hurt Fabi here. Jennifer Blake replaced Sexi Star, who was working hard at the gym. Lolita ably replaced Fabi – she lost because Hijo de Tirantes tripped her up.
3) El Elegido & Laredo KidAlan Stone & Chris Stone
Before the match, Elegido did a dance for a fan, and also hugged his girlfriend in the front row. Elegido won with a powerbomb on Alan. Rudos laid him out after the match, Alan stole the mask again, and this time danced right in front of Elegido’s girlfriend.
4) Extreme Tiger & Jack EvansSilver King & Último Gladiador
tag champions defeated in an non-title action, Tiger getting a surprise pinfall after taking moves.
5) El MesíasAerostarElectroshockSúper Fly [Rey de Reyes,final]
Laredo tried to attack Super Fly before the match, for general crimes against the Air Force since Laredo Kid has last been on TV, but security pulled him away. Aerostar was first out after a Super Fly martinete. Electroshock quickly surprised Super Fly to beat him (again!), and Laredo Kid attacked Super Fly again. Mesias finished Electro with a back cracker and a top rope splash.
6) Dr. Wagner Jr., Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown DQDamián 666, Halloween, Super Crazy, X-Fly
Plan was for the mystery man to be someone new. Plans change! X-Fly was the big surprise instead. Hardcore match with all sorts of weapons, and yet still ended in a DQ when Perro Jr. ran in. Wagner’s mask was all ripped up. After the match, Joaquin came out to bring the Wagners and Clowns to the back – where Mesias had been and was covered it blood. Good for Joaquin for getting a doctor, I guess.

Mesias’ attacker is implied to be LA Park, but Super Fly and/or Cibernetico have very similar attacks in the recent past. I’m not sure if that’s supposed to be a plot point here, or if they’re just very uncreatively redoing the same angle that they just just spent four months on.

8) Atlantis & Máscara DoradaFelino & La Máscara [natl pi, quarterfinal]
9) Atlantis & Máscara DoradaDiamante & Volador Jr. [natl pi, semifinal]
expected winners win, and face Team Red/Blue (Team Purple?) next week.
10) Blue Panther, Rush, Super Porky DQ Terrible, Texano, Último Guerrero
Straight fall win for the tecnicos, Texano desperately fouling Porky in the second. Terrible & Texano continued to beat up Porky until Maximo made the save. Father and son made a hair match challenge. Texano and Terrible accepted!

My assumption/slightly educated guess is that match will happen at Dos Leyendas, but it will not be the main event – there had always been a plan of two main event level matches for that show and that match would work. If this is the sole main event, there’s a problem.

CMLL’s clearly been anxious to do a Super Porky hair mask, first teasing one with Volador (which would’ve been bad for everyone) and then doing this one. It’s surprising Maximo’s involved after the week that was – Cesar argues they shouldn’t trust him in this spot, but I’m not that concerned. Maximo is getting what he wants out of this match, and perhaps that’s a reason he’s not going anywhere. Seems like Rush got moved out of this spot for Maximo, but I suppose Tuesday’s title match is his consolation prize.

Rey Misterio Sr. is promoting a new Hijo del Rey Misterio, which begs many questions. DJ Spectro says the original Hijo del Rey Misteriso was said to be not ambitious enough, but is either one actually his son? It’s not very clear.

Both AAA and Lucha Libre USA tape tonight. AAA has a mystery figure in the main event, LLUSA has a mystery air date. Dorian’s Twitter mentions Perro Aguayo Jr. will be at the AAA show – he’s not in a match right now unless he’s the mystery guy.

Ras de Lona taped their show this week from CMLL’s press conference set. Sneaky hilarity, I like it. Mostly the feuds you’d expect and the teams for last night’s block. Mephisto & Fantasma argued in their interview, with Mephisto even saying he’d rather beat up Fantasma than win the tournament. There was a brief Magnus interview – the red in his gear comes out stronger on TV, but the big headscissors they showed as highlights looked a lot like a new guy still working on his speed. They didn’t show his dive, oddly. Rush did a good promo for his title match. They were clearly setting up Texano (& Terrible) vs Rush/Porky here. Texano was pretty emphatic when he said Rush was no star, Texano was a real star.

Lineups

CMLL (FRI) 02/25/2011 Arena Mexico
1) Bengala & Robin vs Semental & Zayco
2) Fuego, Guerrero Maya Jr., Magnus vs Dr. X, Loco Max, Tiger Kid
3) Ángel de Oro, Delta, Sangre Azteca vs Misterioso Jr., Pólvora, Shigeo Okumura
4) Rush vs Rey Bucanero [lightning]
5) Máximo, Super Porky, Toscano vs Héctor Garza, Terrible, Texano
6) Blue Panther & Dragón Rojo Jr. vs Atlantis & Máscara Dorada [natl pi, final]

Atlantis & Dorada winning back to back years would be odd but not unprecedentedly odd for CMLL. Dorada is on a  hot streak, too.

Rush faces the current light heavyweight champion on Tuesday, and the previous light heavyweight champion on Friday.

More Sangre Azteca vs two of his rivals.

Magnus is back, and now everyone’s ready for him. That’ll be interesting.

Oficials/Clowns/Perros, Mexico preview

Dinastia Navarro by Black Terry Jr.

IWRG (THU) 02/17/2011 Arena Naucalpan [Estrellas del Ring, Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Mi Lucha Libre]
1) Lucky Boy b Imperial
Straight fall win.
2) Carta Brava Jr., Comando Negro, Imposible b Alan Extreme, Eterno, Explosivo
Rudos were made at Eterno for having teamed with the tecnicos. He’s been back and forth between both sides this month, and I have no idea what’s meant to be happening.
3) Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II b Barba Roja, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan
4) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro L Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown and Bestia 666, Damián 666, Halloween [cage]
First out were Monster, Halloween, Fierro, Murder Clown, 911. That left AK47, Psycho, Bestia and Damian. Psycho laid out Bestia with a big move, then dropped AK47 with a martinete. Halloween and Murder Clown both came back into help, and Monster Clown planched everyone. Clowns escaped. Perros escaped next, with AK47 still out from the martinete. The Oficials challenged Psycho to matches after the fact, and Psycho argued with his uncle El Brazo.

Tonight is the second block of the National Tournament. Everyone pegged returning champions Atlantis & Mascara Dorada as the favorites not just because of last year’s success, but because they are each long time rivals of first block winners Blue Panther & Dragon Rojo. We’re also watching to see Hijo del Fantasma and Mephisto fail to get along as a team, and to see if it leads anywhere. One of the other interesting teams is internet favs Valiente & Psicosis. It was just two weeks ago where Psicosis told Arena Puebla press that Puebla was his home and he’d always represent it, but CMLL only counts four ‘schools’ and he and fellow Puebla native Valiente are slotted as Mexico City reps in this tournament. This would be a nice time for CMLL to change their rules in mid stream.

SuperLuchas agrees with Atlantis/Dorada as the favorites. La Presna thinks the biggest match tonight is the women’s trios.

On this past week’s AAA TV (still haven’t gotten to) Cibernetico was shown to have a mole in the Milicia. Who could it be? Perhaps the guy who was questioning things and making secret phone calls last fall? The other important thing here is Konnan has moved the goal line on LA Park, telling him that beating Mesias wasn’t quite enough to get a title shot yet (so he’s not in the title match at Rey de Reyes.)

Also, Laredo Kid not being on TV is apparently a mystery. He hasn’t been on TV since late November, but there hasn’t been many TV tapings since late November.

CMLL public service campaign of the moment: Non-Violence Mexico. Rey Bucanero, Zeuxis and Polvora spoke out for solving conflicts through communication and knowledge. It’s a good cause, but an odd fit for a lucha libre promotion.

Super Crazy is headlining Insane Tour, three shows in early March on the exterior of Mexico City, featuring the usual XLAW crew, including a couple of Chileans. A big year for Chile!

CMLL (TUE) 02/22/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Metatrón vs Evola
2) Astro Boy & Leono vs Drago & Exterminador
3) Black Metal & Palacio Negro vs Hooligan & Skándalo
4) Sangre Azteca, Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Rey Bucanero, Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi

A show! Maybe someone can talk Terrible & Texano into defending their tag team titles at some point.

02/19-21 Lucha Times

box

AAA-US: Atomic Boy! And other people. Main event is Chessman/Zorro vs Wagner/Mesias, with Mesias looking in rough shape. (Airs late on the west coast.)

52MX: surely the Olimpico/Bam Bam title match, to follow up on the cibernetico last week. They’ve been good about that lately.

LATV: Seems to have moved to 3pm eastern on Saturdays (3 hours early), and only the Sunday night repeat remains. At least I can give up on getting a complete version a lot earlier in the week.

Anyway, could they air new episodes three weeks in a row? Well, it’s Blanco/Trueno vs Cholo/Mortiz and a questionable women’s match, so I’d be okay either way.

GDL: they pulled together two tapings last week, so no sure bet on what Felino will pick for this week. 01/11 has a Black Metal/Metal Blanco/Palacio Negro vs Okumura/Virus/Yoshiahsi match which sounds chaotic.

———–

CMLL: Dorada/Averno, block A of the national tournament, and apparently Magnus’ debut will air as well. That’ll be fun!

AAA-MEX: finishing up from Naucalpan: AAA vs IWRG, Electro vs Metal, Bizarros vs AAA.

CMLL-FOX: Panther/Porky/Toscano vs Garza/Casas/Volador

CMLLC3: Demus vs Virus in trios, set up for Ephesto/Rush

CMLLMega6: Mima/Blanca/Tiffany vs Lluvia/Luna/Marcela is the bonus match

Puebla: 13 days behind, so this is the UG/Psicosis show. We’ve got to talk TVCDeportes into turning their Justin.TV feed on for this show (especially since they’re saving the broadcasts.)

ACM: CMLL match? Angel de Oro/Fantasma/Aguila vs Dr. X/Bucanero/Skandalo

PdM: no idea.

IWRG: three way cage match that just ended, Navarros vs Piratas.
——-
CMLL-TFN: Volador Jr. vs Mistico, for the title.

Maximo loses (and stays), Volador/Mascara, Mistico

CMLL AULL (WED) 02/16/2011 Arena Lopez Mateos [Estrellas del Ring, The Gladiatores]
1) Eros, Freelance, Rey Krystal b Hombre sin Rostro, Juan el Caporal, Ronny Ventura
2) Love Angel, Mike Segura, Zumbi b Destroyer, Epitafio, Rey Krimen
3) Iron Love, Sadico, Yakuza b Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro
Yakzua was injured, but his AULL all star team still beat the IWRG trios champs.
4) La Máscara & Latin Lover b Arkángel de la Muerte & Black Warrior [UWE TAG, eightfinal]
5) Héctor Garza & Olimpico b Máximo & Sagrado [UWE TAG, eightfinal]
6) Héctor Garza & Olímpico b La Máscara & Latin Lover [UWE TAG, quarterfinal]
Garza stole Mascara’s mask to pin him, Latin pinned Olimpico, and Garza snuck in a foul on Latin to advance.

Maximo worked the show and appears to be going nowhere.  Around midnight last night, the Maximo Alvarado facebook page was updated, with the user claiming Maximo had changed his mind and decided to stay in CMLL after all. Unless Maximo decided to address this in person – and that doesn’t seem like the current CMLL way of doing things – that’s probably the last word on it for now. If this was a fake, they accomplished their goal of getting a lot of attention for a day (and we’ll surely see more fakes like this in the future even if it was true.) If it really was Maximo, then I guess he sort of lived his gimmick, because this was quite the diva move.

Earlier, Dorian Roldan had unhelpfully tweeted that Maximo to AAA was only a rumor. He didn’t say it was a false rumor or a true rumor, only really noting that it was something that had been said. (I agree!)

The four final teams in the UWE Tag Team tournament appear to be Atlantis/Ultimo Guerrero, Mascara Ano 2000 Sr./Cien Caras Jr., Chucho el Roto/Iron Love and Garza/Olimpico.

CMLL (TUE) 02/15/2011 Arena Queretaro [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Low Rider b Alex Guajardo
2) Cachorro & Zumba b Tauro & Voraz
these four are mentioned as Ultimo Guerrero trainees
3) Dance Boy, Drabek I, Drabek II b Galaxy, King Azteca, Ursus
4) Diamante, Guerrero Maya Jr., Sangre Azteca DQ Pólvora, Terrible, Texano Jr.
Polvora yanked Sangre Azteca’s mask. The two are still talking mask match
5) La Máscara b Volador Jr. [MEX LH]
said to be a very good match.

On his biweekly appearance on Figure Four Daily, Steve Sims explained why CMLL has seemed to change tactics about Mistico (from writing him out and preparing to rip him to just ignoring the whole thing): many in CMLL’s offices believe Mistico will not do well in WWE and will end up leaving them, maybe even by the end of this year, and then CMLL might just be able to bring him back and move on.

AAA posted three March house show lineups yesterday, and I can’t decide which one is my favorite. Is it the one where barely mobile Konnan is forced to team with Alan Stone, the mystery Pierroth Jr. continues his mysterious feud with Joe Lider and no one can spell Ludark? Or is it the one with the tecnico (?) team of La Parka, Argenis, and Yuriko? I wonder which Gemelos are working this Mexico State show – the Fantasticos from past IWRG?

DTU announced Jennifer Blake would be on their 03/05 show @ Arena Lopez Mateos. That means she’s probably returning to AAA on the 03/04 taping in Puebla.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update and this week’s Ras de Lona.

Lineups

CMLL (TUE) 02/22/2011 Arena Mexico
1) Freesbe & Höruz vs Apocalipsis & Mortiz
2) La Comandante, Mima Shimoda, Tiffany vs Estrella Mágica, Goya Kong, Lluvia
3) Euforia, Raziel, Virus vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Demus 3:16, Hijo del Signo
4) Ephesto vs Rush [CMLL LH]
5) La Máscara, Super Porky, Toscano vs Averno, Mephisto, Último Guerrero

Rush seems like the heavy favorite in the title match, and also seems not quite ready for this meteoric push. This works a lot better if it feels like Rush is earning it, not being given it, and the best thing they could do for him right now is have him lose. The fans are less receptive to this sort of push then they were years ago.

Demus gets his rematch. Signo being in the match is interesting; Cesar mentioned months back that novatos were prohibited from appearing back to back weeks, so is Signo no longer considered a rookie?

Estrella Magica hasn’t been seen since October, which makes a trying match look a little more interesting.

CMLL on LATV (02/05/2011)

Mascarita Dorada

taped at Arena Mexico, 01/14/2011

recap: here
file: http://www.multiupload.com/5O5EQA0XOM

Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II vs Escorpion & Hijo del Signo: Rayos are surely not going to win the CMLL bodybuilding contest any time soon, but they’re perfect for their role, and this is about where Signo belongs for the moment. Escorpion really should be doing something more, but CMLL’s being it’s slow self at pushing new people.

Bam Bam, Eléctrico, Mascarita Dorada vs Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito: This was going fine until everyone started accidentally killing each other on the dives. Dorada’s impact was never clearly shown, but obviously very bad.

Maximo wins & jumps to AAA (?), Rush/Epehsto, Mascara/Sangre

CMLL (TUE) 02/15/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Titanio b Templario
2) Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II b Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno
I think this means the Rayos could take the Cats in a fight, but we need to see that match.
3) Mima Shimoda, Princesa Blanca, Tiffany b Lluvia, Luna Mágica, Marcela
Luna and Lluvia had a goofup, which allowed the rudos to take advantage and the win.
4) Hijo del Fantasma & Toscano b Mr. Águila & Olímpico
5) Rey Bucanero b Máximo
Before the match, the two agreed to a bet: Maximo would lose his hair if he lost, but Rey would be forced to go out on a date with Maximo if he lost. Perico distracted Maximo in the first fall to set up Bucanero taking it. Perico stayed involved, but Maximo pulled out the second fall. Bucanero tried faking a foul in the third fall, but it didn’t work. Perico snuck in to foul Maximo, which worked last week, but Maximo moved and Bucanero was fouled by his own parrot. Maximo got the big win. Bucanero was very sad.

A few hours later, Maximo went on his facebook page* and said he was leaving CMLL and joining AAA. That must’ve been a pretty poor date! Maximo had earlier mentioned he’d received an offer from a “strong” promotion and was undecided on what to do.

Maximo is presumably getting a better deal and/or a bigger push in AAA, though his current style doesn’t seem a good fit for AAA. Pimpinela, who Maximo will inevitably team or feud with, has been consistently placed in the early matches. Maximo’s father, Brazo de Plata, did well early in his most recent AAA stint but ended up having a bad falling out by the end, claiming the promotion was starving him out. Psycho Clown, Maximo’s brother, had the long winning streak and has been frequently used near the top of AAA shows, but appears less frequently than Maximo appeared in CMLL. This looks like a risky move from the outside, but there’s always more going on we don’t see.

No word when he might debut in AAA. There is a mystery spot in the main event of AAA’s TV taping, but my understanding was AAA already had planned out someone else to debut in that spot (a person who’d been teaming with the Perros on the indies.) Maximo as a Perro would be weird, but plans can change. Maximo is booked almost every day for the rest of this week in CMLL, including tonight.

* Assuming this is really Maximo’s facebook page. What is real, what is fake, and what is friends/family/fans/promotions doing it their name is confusing, and the promotions could probably help themselves out by separating the real from the fake. Though not so much in this case!

CMLL (TUE) 02/15/2011 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Robin & Trueno b Cholo & Ramstein
2) Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito b Astral, Bam Bam, Eléctrico
Things are going right for the minis rudos: Olimpico won the title, they got another win here, and Astral and Electrico had issues with each other thru the match.
3) Euforia, Pólvora, Virus b Arkángel de la Muerte, Demus 3:16, Hijo del Signo
Straight falls for the Cancerberos, which Virus emphasized to Demus after the match. Demus demanded a rematch for next week.
4) Ángel de Oro, Delta, Metro b Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis, Yoshihashi
5) La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Rush b Averno, Dragón Rojo Jr., Ephesto
Rush and Ephesto feuded thru the match. Rush beat Ephesto with a casita, then challenged for a shot at Ephesto’s CMLL Light Heavyweight Championship. Ephesto did not like that idea.

Three different feuds is a lot for one CMLL Tuesday show.

Even though Sangre Azteca is teaming with the tecnicos right now, that doesn’t mean the tecnicos all like him. La Mascara told Fuego en el Ring that he disliked Sangre Azteca from the first day Mascara joined the CMLL gym and is still angry about Sangre beating him for the national welterweight championship four years ago. La Mascara declared he will not form a team or trio with Sangre at all.

IWRG has announced stips for tomorrow’s three way nine man cage match (Perros vs Psychos vs Oficials.) The first team out wins, the last team left has to face Joe Lider & Nicho the next week in a cage match. That’s a harsh punishment.

Mi Lucha Libre continues visiting lucha libre trainers with El Gran Apache.

The Perros makeup card for this Sunday has changed, largely with indy guys out and AAA guys in.

NJPW announced a pair of “Road to the Super Jr. 2 Days Tournament” shows for April 7 and 8. That sounds like CMLL involvement.

Lineups

CMLL (MON) 02/21/2011 Arena Puebla
1) Blue Center & Silver vs Ares & Centauro de Fuego
2) Asturiano, Fabián el Gitano, Metálico vs Demus 3:16, Durango Kid, Espiritu Maligno
3) Hooligan, Loco Max, Nitro vs Escorpion, Puma King, Raziel
4) Ángel de Oro, Diamante, Rush vs Euforia, Pólvora, Virus
5) Blue Panther, La Máscara, Máscara Dorada vs Atlantis, Averno, Último Guerrero

Odd rudo vs rudo tercera. Kind of a mirror of the Tuesday shows, with 3 Tuareg vs 1 Cancerbero. They’re getting closer.

Probably one week away from a title match.

top six stories of the last two weeks

  1. CMLL told the press there would be a press conference about Mistico. Later, CMLL disavowed all knowledge of any press conference. Meanwhile, he’s listed as working CMLL shows in northern Mexico next week. Mistico’s photo is no longer taken down from their websites and promotional info, but they’re going out of their way not to mention his name.
  2. Magnus debuted for CMLL. Most of the Generacion 2011 guys have looked unrefined, and Magnus would’ve probably been as good as any of them in a vacuum. This debut caught a more attention than the other debuts because Magnus was dressed in a Mistico like silver and white and a similar mask while doing similar moves. (The color switch seemed to be a last minute change – he had his own t-shirt, but with his white/red colors.) The “new Mistico”, who’s related to the original one, was the talk of the week. CMLL ignored that talk too.
  3. Extreme Tiger advanced in the Rey de Reyes tournament. The other 3 blocks were announced are Aerostar/Electroshock/Mesias/Super Fly, Wagner/Park/Nicho/Halloween, and Jack/Decnnis/Cuervo/Carlito (debuting)
  4. Pequeno Olimpico won the CMLL Minis title, ending Bam Bam’s 2 plus year reign.
  5. Heavy Metal and Electroshock challenged each other (and us) to a five match series. Electroshock used a distraction and a guitar to win the first match.
  6. Blue Panther & Dragon Rojo, representing La Laguna, advanced to the national tournament final

Other stuff

AAA on Televisa #976 (02/05/2011)

taped at Centro Civico de Ecatepec, EdM, 01/15/2011

recap: here
file: http://www.multiupload.com/O2A4GFBR2I

charly manson IS uma thurman

Mascarita Divina & Octagoncito vs Mini Histeria & Mini Psicosis – usual six minute minis match. Good, not enough time, not particularly going anywhere. There’s a spark missing without Abismo, but Histeria & Psicosis are perfectly competent and Octagoncito is really good right now.

Fabi Apache & Pimpinela Escarlata vs Sexy Star & Yuriko – this two felt like it could’ve aired any time in the last two years. And may have? Crowd was really into it and Pimpi and Yuriko appear to have a match every other day on a spot show, so this went well.

Extreme Tiger, Jack Evans, La Parka vs Charly Manson, Cibernético, Escoria – Cibernetico broke Parka’s kid’s leg, and he’s still wildly cheered. Cibernetico is so popular with the AAA crowd, it may be impossible for him to be an actually booed rudo. Same problem Ric Flair has now whenever he tries to be a heel. I just compared Cibernetico to Ric Flair, that just happened. Anyway, I’m not actually sure the Bizarros want to be booed so it probably doesn’t matter. This was a standard AAA trios, and Parka didn’t seem nearly as much a chump when they showed the foul that set up the finish. Rudos seemed to work as a team, and as a funny dance squad.
